They were pretty exotic at the time. A serious race bike for the street, or more likely the track!
A generation or two earlier Honda developed their DOHC CB models in endurance racing, subsequently naming the resulting production models
(in some markets) the "Bol d'or" or "Super Bol d'or" in name of that particular race.

Dirt track styling also got the nod for awhile with Honda also...using the "Ascot" track for inspiration.

Another "dirty" race replica for the enduro crowd this time.
Ossa "Six Days" replica named after the famed ISDT.





Also done by KTM in more recent times....

Super Bol D'or CB1100F, was originally in my hands just as in roadholder's post above; here in its first iteration toward becoming a racer not racer rep:



(Phillip Island, Siberia is the corner).

And in its current form, a la superbike 1982:



(Hampton Downs, T3).

Yikes! Do they ride 450 lb bikes in the brutal Erzberg event? Sounds like a recipe for a heart attack and a double hernia!

As I understand it the E.R. is the reason the SER was built. They have a twins class and KTM was tired of the Bavarians winning in their back yard. Not a race for the faint of heart or weak of constitution.

The Baja theme seems to be a popular one, with more recent entries from Honda, KTM and Husky as well. Even a Chinese knock-off brand.
All of them proof that there is not necessarilly a connection between winning an event and naming a bike after it!
